Default How odd...

Was just looking up a 99 Ranger on fueleconomy.gov, and apparently for 1999 & 2000 there were NO Gasoline only 3.0L powered Rangers made, just flex fuel ones, how weird.

Not really, they're 2 completely different engines, the 2.5 is a SOHC and puts out 119 HP, the 2.3 is a DOHC and puts out 143 HP.

Lucky you. The best I've ever seen was 24 mpg on my 2.5L.
